PreAct Technologies and ESPROS Photonics Collaborate on Next-Generation Sensing Solutions

PreAct Technologies, an Oregon-based developer of near-field flash LiDAR technology  and ESPROS Photonics, a Swiss company leader in the design and production of time-of flight chips and 3D cameras, recently announced a collaboration agreement to develop  new flash LiDAR technologies for specific use cases in automotive, trucking, industrial  automation and robotics. The collaboration combines the dynamic abilities of PreAct’s  software-definable flash LiDAR and the versatile and ultra-ambient-light-robust time-of flight technology from ESPROS to create next-generation near-field sensing solutions. 

“Our partnership with ESPROS is a major milestone for our company in our goal to provide high performance, software-definable sensors to meet the needs of customers across  various industries,” said Paul Drysch, CEO and co-founder of PreAct Technologies.  “Looking to the future, vehicles across all industries will be software-defined, and our flash  LiDAR solutions are built to support that infrastructure from the beginning.” 

The automotive and trucking industries continue to rapidly integrate ADAS and self-driving  capabilities into vehicles, and as NHTSA (the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety  Administration) has just revised the requirements for human control in fully automated  vehicles, the need for ultra-precise, high performance sensors is paramount to ensuring safe autonomous driving. The sensor solutions created by PreAct and ESPROS will  address top ADAS and self-driving features such as traffic sign recognition, curb detection, night vision and pedestrian detection with the highest frame rates and resolution of any  sensor on the market. 

In addition to providing solutions for automotive and trucking, PreAct and ESPROS will  show superior performance, functionality, and cost to the expanding robotics industry.  According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, the global industrial  robotics market size is expected to reach $116.8 billion by 2030. PreAct and ESPROS  solutions will enable a wide range of robotics and automation applications including QR  code scanning, obstacle avoidance and gesture recognition.  

“We have extensive plans to demonstrate the incredible capabilities of our 3D chipsets  with PreAct’s hardware and software. The ESPROS Pre-Act partnership ensures  customers can benefit from the shortest possible time to market for advanced tools such  as simulation. Our combined resources and expertise will allow us to enable  groundbreaking products across every industry" said Beat DeCoi, President and CEO of  ESPROS Photonics. “By combining our best in class TOF chips with PreAct’s innovation  and drive, we will see great results with clients benefiting from this partnership.”
